The hills and mountains of the high desert north of Los Angeles have fascinated and attracted film makers since the inception of the industry. Most of them have been photographed more extensively than Jeff Stryker's dick (if not as memorably--or meaningfully). A couple of these areas are especially outstanding for their natural and awesome beauty featuring great slabs and outcroppings of huge rocks that were probably polished by glacial movement during an Ice Age and deposited in their stark magnificence during a warming period. These areas are especially beautiful during mid-Autumn when rain brings back lush greenery and the areas take on an almost mystical quality. This is one of the things that we wished to capture in Dark Side of the Moon. And we did! But at quite a price. Weather is not a filmmaker's friend at this time of the year and there were days and nights of sitting in hotel rooms waiting for the rain to stop, and shooting days battling windstorms of alternating searing heat and blasting chill (no
t to mention the nightmare of roaring microphones). It was a battle. But when man is pitted against nature, the struggle frequently creates a special community among those who are struggling. At least it was that way among those of us who made Dark Side of the Moon. It was a battle. But it was a battle in which we triumphed.
Dark Side of the Moon has a true ensemble feel to it--both technically and in performance--that is exceptional for an XXX-rated video. Watching the actors interacting with one another and with the land and other natural and hypernatural elements is a very special experience. The story told in this video is a bit special with both mythic and mystic elements. Our setting and situation were the perfect base for bringing together these elements and balancing them with the raw sexuality of really good pornography. The story centers around an archeological team's search for greater knowledge of myths and mysteries of ancient Indian religious rites--handled with sensitivity, humor, respect and honesty that is rare in the greater film industry. It is fictional and erotic but it could have been real--and erotic.
The video stars wonderful Sonny Markham--an exceptional actor who manages the unique feat of being both sensationally sexual and innocently boy-next-door simultaneously. A Studi0 2OOO exclusive, Sonny is special to everyone --- especially to us--and deserves that overused appellation --star. The word is frequently degraded by its overuse in the XXX-rated world. Sonny gives it back a lot of its luster. If you've seen Sonny's five performances, you know the word fits. If you have watched his video work from its beginnings to this, his latest effort, you can see how stars are born. Talent, for sure. And a lot of very hard work. That's Sonny --charismatic talent, high sexual energy, and lots of sweat. Dark Side of the Moon brings Sonny to a new level of achievement both sexually and as an actor. The role he plays in this video is very different from his previous work and he takes on the challenge and triumphs admirably.
Sonny has two scenes in Dark Side of the Moon. The first scene is with newcomer Kurt Stefano. With looks both exceptionally handsome and extraordinarily sensual Kurt has a very special future ahead. He gives his all to and for Sonny and we are the grateful recipients of some very intense and erotically tender lovemaking. Sonny's second scene is with Jordan West a recent and most appreciated arrival who combines quiet and assured masculinity with bottoming talents that may never be plumbed fully. The setting for this scene is something else! So are these two guys' work together.
In between, we have a wonderful outdoor shower scene between award-winning Matt Bradshaw (best top for 1996) and award-giving Logan Reed; and a delightful three-way between youngsters KC. Hart, Tyler Flannery and Brant Cross. We were at a party where Logan and Matt promised that if they could do a scene together, we'd never forget it. They were right! These two fully enjoy the give and take of complete sexual encounters without distraction and labels. No role-playing; just real sex. The three-way at and in the jeep is our celebration of youth. These three are fresh and exciting. They were willing. They were wanting. And we couldn't keep them waiting. Ah, the energy of the young--and the endurance--and the spunk.
Dark Side of the Moon sounds a little threatening. Don't be misled. Dark Side of the Moon is an exciting, refreshing, vivid, erotic, and imaginative winner in every way and a show that you're going to be hearing a great deal about in the coming weeks.
In closing, we congratulate Sonny and Adam Rom for their award winning performance in In Man's Country. It's a wonderful scene and we hope you've seen it. You should!
